Illinois DUI attorney Brian Roberts is highly trained, and highly skilled in Illinois drunk driving defense. An IL DUI involves a lot of scientific evidence that must be carefully evaluated to look for inconsistencies that often are not readily apparent from the police and lab reports.
Drunk driving defense is an area of law that requires special training. There are seminars all across the nation for various aspects of drunk driving defense. These include Standardized Field Sobriety Test (SFST) training, breath alcohol machines, blood alcohol testing, urine testing, Drug Recognition Expert (DRE), and many more areas.
As the consequences of an IL DUI conviction have become more severe over the past many years, so has the level of sophistication of drunk driving defense. DUI attorneys from around the nation have formed organizations to help each other learn about the science behind DUI arrests, and strategies for defending their clients.
One of the latest nationwide trends in drunk driving defense is the government’s introduction of No Refusal Weekends. This is a rapidly expanding program sponsored by the federal government with the purpose of coercing people into pleading guilty to a DUI. One prosecutor in Texas publicly stated that “If it bleeds, it pleads,” meaning that people who have their blood drawn against their will are less likely to challenge their case in court.
Of course, whether the police take your blood or not there are a lot of defenses to an IL DUI case. Blood evidence is not as reliable as many people seem to believe, and breath testing is even worse. For instance, did you know that the blood itself is never tested in an IL DUI case? It’s not! Instead, the air pocket between the blood and the rubber tube stopper is tested.
